Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011.  This grant, which is additional to main Academy funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the national inequalities between students have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at some point in the last 6 years, Looked After Children and other students.  This funding will ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable in our budget. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.

At Perry Court Primary  we support all of our students. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as well as additional support to enable the higher ability students to achieve more than they ever thought possible. The Leadership team work alongside the Governors to ensure that the Pupil Premium is targeted and provides the best possible support to students that may be at a disadvantage.

Commentary: Pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium achieved more than the non-Pupil Premium students in writing and maths in 2014, hence the negative percentages.
